taxes you can take until you topple the entire economy. this is the challenge that this week will have. this week republicans will have a budget that balances in ten years. the democrats' budget never balances. no household can run that way. >> let me challenge you on this point because here is paul ryan this week, and he laid out very clearly what he thought the job was. let me play that. >> we think we owe the country a balanced budget. we think we owe the country solutions to big problems that are plaguing our nation -- a debt crisis on the horizon, a slow-growing economy, people trapped in poverty. we're showing our answers. >> right, but the answers rely on $700 billion in savings from interest. most of the deficit reduction comes from repealing the president's health care reform, which nobody thinks is going to happen. so how seriously should this be viewed as a roadmap for a balanced budget? >> it should be very serious, because budgets -- >> you're not going to repeal obama care. >> budgets are blue prints and priorities. we lay out. we think obama care should be repealed. the
-increases debt, raises taxes and never balances. the top republican for budgetary issues blasted the democratic plan. >> now we know why senator reid did not want to bring up a budget. the plan from the democratic leadership is a failed plan for america. it does not alter the debt course of america, has no growth component to it. it spends more and taxes more. reporter: but these budget resolutions only require a simple majority so there are enough democrats to pass the democrats' budget resolution without republican votes needed. and so there you have republicans in the senate, all they can do is bash the plan. they cannot actually stop it. the house republicans are passing the paul ryan plan, and so then they'll go to conference and that where the heavy lifting will begin. >> shepard: the paul ripe plan has zero chance. >> it will pass the house and then they'll try to iron it out between the two plans. the paul ryan plan on its own would not be signed by president obama, would not pass the senate, burt it will pass the house. >> shepard: mike, thank you. meantime, something about our econo
challenged him on spending, taxes, a balanced budget and even closing the white house to public tours. for more insight on what the someone like we're joined by congress warm candice miller. miss miller, thank you. what was your particular gripe at mr. obama today and how tough of that meeting? >> well, you know, i guess it's his charm offensive and actually i think it's working because i think he's becoming charmed by the house republicans. >> but you went after him. >> i asked him a question that we are just getting bombarded with here on capitol hill. i said mr. president we're all dealing with sequestration, the house members have taken a 5% than 6% and now a 8% cut to our own budgets. we're dealing with the sequester best we can. no one has ever thought or made any mention about closing the capitol or capitol visitor's center or this beautiful house office building you see in the rear. nobody said that. mr. president, if you have to close the white house to tours and you need money take it out of our hide that's exactly what i said to him. i said we don't have to come to the whit
if republicans agreed to new tax increases. we have heard this before. however, the white house put a positive smpin on the meeting calling it a good substantive exchange and called it a good conversation. the president admitted more with abc news there is more to be done. >> ultimately it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is we can't do any revenue or we can only do revenue if we gut medicare or gut social security or medicaid. if that is the position we probably will not be able to get a deal. >> if your piece up on politico read conflicting reports, some say it was more of the same from the president and others say it was a step in the right direction for him to come up to the hill and visit bus. anything come out of this meeting yesterday and the ones that will follow today and the rest of the week? >> i would just replay that clip over and over and over again and that tells you everything you need to know about the next year. the president wants tax increases and he does not want to do a bill with big changes in entitlement reforms. republicans don't want ta
before from republicans. is that true? >> largely true but there is one huge difference. that is the tax increases that have already gone into effect on january the 1st. paul ryan budget accepts the increases. it does not attempt to change them. in other words he is not rehashing the whole fiscal cliff debate. he is accepting that, yes, we've got these higher tax rates in place. we all keep them. that's a huge difference from where he was before the election. martha: he includes tax cuts, tax hikes, i should say but doesn't include obamacare. he would like to see that go. >> he wants that out of here. >> stuart, thank you very much. bill: you've been waiting 1400 days and finally we got a budget. so now we know. martha: it is exciting. takes less time to pick a pope. put it that way. at least we think so. bill: in the modern day. martha: exactly. bill: in "america's newsroom" the new polling shows public view since the election. is the honeymoon over? some numbers tell a very interesting story on that topic. martha: this one is not going away, folks. the fight whether or not you can brin
medicaid turns medicare into a voucher program. it gives the wealthiest of americans yet another tax break and it repeals obamacare. it will get passed by the house. it will go nowhere in the senate. it is dead on arrival. but the republicans keep putting this out there. we will tell you about that and, of course, take your calls and get you a chance to get involved in the conversation. give us a call on our toll-free line at 866-557-7377. did we tell you? it looks like there was life on mars. whoa! coming up on current tv.

, again, if the president wants to let our unwillingness to raise taxes get in the way, then we're not going to be able to set differences aside and focus on what we agree on. and my take away was that. >> frank and candid are always interesting diplomatic code words when year overseas. thiser boehner in today's "the washington post." for all of washington's focus on the president's outreach to republicans, it's his engagement with members of his own party n that will determine whether we succeed dealing with the challenges facing our economy. the fact is there are folks on both side of the aisle that talk a good game on the idea of reforming medicare or doing something about social security, nobody wants to own the plan. they want to agree to it reluctantly to a plan brought up by the other side because here's another fact. medicare and social security are universally popular and even in a republican primary getting caught messing around with social security without a reason is bad politics. so any time you hear this from either side, the other side needs to lead, translation

are always trying to protect taxes or wealthy people? is that a problem out there with the rank-and-file voters? >> no, i mean -- i don't think so. i think that's obviously a misperception that's become a real perception by the public. but i think we have to talk about things in ways that people can relate to. i mean, if you're talking about taxes and taxing small businesses, you have to talk about the fact that if -- if -- if our small businessman has to pay more money to the government, then he's going to have less money to pay to his ememployers, and the ememployers will have less money to send kids to the school of their choice. i think it's a matter of talking about the debt differently. not just we are in imminent danger in a debt crisis in this country. but what does that mean to people? it means that our government is growing so fast and it's becoming so expensive that we're making payments to our credit cards that we can't afford, which means we have to keep -- we'll keep having this debate about needing more revenue to the government. well, that means less money in peo
